The Gap

Post by forgotten oceans » Sat Nov 21, 2009 8:36 pm

The Gap has a new holiday commercial out that I thought was share worthy. While I don't shop there, I did think if was nice that for once pagans are being recognized/marketed to mainstream. Even if it is just them trying to make a buck, it still means progress for us, weird I know, but still a step forward. :-D

Go Christmas, Go Channukah, Go Kwanzaa, Go Solstice!

Reading the comments, wow many are offended by this commercial!

It is nice to get some mention mainstream, even if it's at The Gap.

The comments made me really angry.

Well and the clothes, lets just say I am not running tot he gap this year.

But whent hings start to get into the mainstream, it is a good sign.

I'm considering to go by GAP and see if they have a "Happy Solstace" shirt.


But yes-
This is another PRIME example of "Freedom of Religion" being hailed as "Freedom of Christian Religion," people not realizing that Christmas was a Pagan Holiday (Jesus was born around June), and that they're taking the GAP so seriously (they're a corperation - of course they're going to try to Market to EVERYONE!) for being "sell-outs."
